Subway's new, limited-time Applewood Pulled Pork sub sandwich features slow-cooked pulled pork covered in a sweet and smoky barbecue sauce, along with your choice of bread and condiments. I went with lettuce, pickles, and red onions on Italian bread.
A footlong sandwich was $6.95 (cheaper than the previous pulled pork, which was $7.50!)
Compared to the last time they tried offering pulled pork, the pork this time had a better, meatier (but still tender) texture and just plain better look to it (which is not saying much because it was kinda pink and mushy last time around).
The barbecue sauce doesn't seem to be tomato based. It's sweet and smoky with just a slight tang. Unlike, say, the Arby-Q, the meat wasn't dripping in it, so I could actually taste the pork. If you prefer it doused with sauce, it's definitely do-able but not my preference. In fact, the meat seems good enough on its own to forgo the barbecue sauce altogether (I was told there's already some sauce on the meat though).
